The intended design of this leveling system is to allow for adjustments throughout the life of the table. Whether it works in practice, I don't know. But, that is the intent, according to the company's literature.
Look at where the levelers are. Picture where the rail bolts are, then picture the 3 piece slate, and where the levelers are in relation to the slate seams. Now picture this exact same leveling system on any GC. Picture the slate screws holding the slate seams in place, and all the slate screws mounting the slate to the frame, then picture the heads of the slate mounting screws/bolts covered with cloth, and rails bolted on. How is it going to work to adjust the level of the slate 6 months down the road once the table has acclimated to its environment, and needs to be fine tuned for level....again. That is the very reason there's so many GC's out of level around the country in pool rooms and homes. No seems to want to relieve the slates during the recovery because it takes extra time, and most don't know how to correctly level the slates in the first place. Would it blow your mind if I told you 99% of the so called table mechanics in this country can't even use the Diamond leveling system correctly? Hell, they can't even use the Brunswick leveling system correctly, which is why they still use wedges instead of the leveling system. And as far as that goes, you can't even come back on the GC4, 5, or 6 and use the leveling system without taking the table apart so you can ack of on the mounting screws....and you CAN'T level the slates without being able to back off on the slate seam screws first....which requires taking the tables apart, and pulling up the bed cloth.
